Graeme Souness is wrong to rip into Jack Grealish in his latest Daily Mail column

Jack Grealish must prove Graeme Souness wrong once again. Not for the first time, the Liverpool icon has come out firing at Manchester City’s mercurial wideman.

Souness has waited on the sidelines, loading his gun, ready to aim for the perfect opportunity to blast Grealish down. Notice how he was short on ammunition just six months ago when the Manchester City star played every minute in the Champions League final to clinch a historic treble?

In his latest Daily Mail column, Souness has ripped into Grealish following an injury-hit start to the campaign. The 70-year-old is on the verge of writing him off, weaponising Jeremy Doku’s success to take aim at the midfielder.

“No coach would tell a player to linger on the ball like Grealish does, and that is why he’s found himself out of the team,” Souness seethed. “They paid £55million for Doku, a little over half of the £100m they paid for Grealish. That shows you the premium there is on Premier League players. There are no bargains to be had in England, they are overvalued.

“And if you’re City, spending £100m, it’s not for a squad player. It’s for someone who gets in the strongest XI and makes a difference in every game they play. Jack is not that, and I’m not sure he ever will be.

“He is, for me, at a crossroads in his City career. Doku is 21 years old and is only going to improve. Jack is 28. He needs to have a close look at himself. He should be in his pomp. Between 26 and 30 you have the knowledge. You’re physically and mentally stronger. He will not be getting any better. This should be his time.”
